"This course made me see leadership in a different light than I had before; in a more positive way, in which I now see it as necessary to make the world a better place."

 "Studying abroad in Costa Rica with UPEACE really have me a 'real-life' example of all the things I've been learning in class. If you get the chance, go for it!" - Leslie Lane,  

Northern Kentucky University, March 2014 


I heard a snapping sound and felt as if someone had kicked me from behind. I crawled off the indoor soccer field knowing that I was done playing - I just did not realize how long I was done for. Meanwhile, the game went on.


That was 12 weeks ago. This morning, I walked slowly across my house for the first time without crutches and felt elated - I could have been walking on air. I am still three months away from being able to go for a run, but I am grateful to have my mobility back. As someone who talks about the applications of positive psychology in all my courses, I've had to take a large dose of my own medicine, and I'm happy to report that it actually works.

Education 2.0: Teaching in a Fast-Changing World
Last week a new cohort of University for Peace students graduated with masters degrees in hand. As students and speakers alike talked of the ongoing challenges in peacebuilding and sustainable development, it was impossible not to reflect on each of our own individual roles in this quest. So here's a question for you: "How do you incorporate elements of positivity, peace, and making positive impact in your day-to-day work?"

For inspiration, here's a 2-min. video that we view in our 'Designing Your Life: Innovating from the inside out' online course.
